Subscription box clothing! Seems to be one of the coolest most interesting things out there. And for anyone whose an addict to anything then the subscription should be your best friend. Well personally for me I don’t own any subscriptions at the moment (not even a Netflix just running my Amazon Prime Student Trial) because well I tend to get bored of things and change things up a lot. So trying out a subscription box service sounded like fun! And I want to try all the clothing subscription boxes first. So this month it’s Stitch Fix!
For those of you who don’t know what Stitch Fix is here is a description from their website. The company was founded in 2011 and went public in 2017.
My Journey before I got the box 📦
So for my style profile basically I did several quizzes where I liked and disliked clothing items. Then I gave them input on my body and clothes that fit me well, brands I shopped and shared my Pinterest boards, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn Profile. And this is what I filled in for About You:
I like trying new styles but I’m a skinny person so not everything works. I go to college and my side job is a tutor. I like to be really fancy and I love Fallon Carrington’s dressing style from the TV show by CW Dynasty.My statement for About You.
For price I had requested that all my items should be cheaper. I was also asked “Why Stitch Fix?”. And this is what I responded with:
To try items I wouldn’t select for myself. To give myself a gift / surprise. To discover new trends / styles. To get expert advice.Why Stitch Fix?
I paid a $20 styling fee. Made my box on Saturday September 28th and received it on Thursday October 3rd.
The Box ARRIVES! 😆
I was really nervous to see what’s inside my box. I was pleasantly surprised with my box. I could have kept more items, however I was on a tight budget of $60 so there really wasn’t a whole lot I could keep.
So I unpacked all my items and then I got my bill, and a little envelope from the stylist along with a card from Stitch Fix.
Picking which item? 🤔
And now it’s time for the grand reveal! I only kept the skirt because the tops weren’t striking me that dearly and sadly I did not keep the bracelets as the skirt was expensive and I didn’t plan for jewelry.
More Options For Getting Styled!
So this is a new feature that Stitch Fix added to the Stitch Fix experience. You can now shop for items from Stitch Fix without it being a part of your box or being styled for it. The items are already pre-styled with existing items you have.
Overall I would say Stitch Fix did an excellent job in size and finding things that look good on me and the best part was the quality. The only concern for me was it not really reflecting my personality in terms of style and me not being comfortable with spending so much money on these clothes because I lacked confidence that I would actually enjoy wearing them. I think styling wise there definitely was a difference in things I like vs things I actually wear. Liking and disliking items of clothing is easy for a style profile but am I just liking clothes I would like to see on others or I am liking them for myself? Also it’s definitely a different experience to see how someone else perceives your style versus how you see it. Overall this was a good experience and it wouldn’t hurt to try out again! I was really surprised with how much I liked the jewelry item. Hopefully next time I will keep my eyes open for jewelry too and be able to work that into my budget. 😊
